National Origin Discrimination

Whether an employee or job applicant's ancestry is Polish, Irish, Ukrainian, Japanese, Iraqi, American Indian, or any other nationality, he or she is entitled to the same employment opportunities as anyone else. The national origin discrimination lawyers in our Dallas office represent employees in discrimination disputes against employers. If you believe you have a claim of national origin discrimination, please contact us.

National origin discrimination occurs when an employer discriminates against an employee because he or she comes from a particular place, because of ethnicity, or because of a particular accent. The discrimination can also be because of perceived ethnicity. It is also for employer to discriminate against an employee because the employee is married to someone of a particular nationality. Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the EEOC has been inundated with claims of national origin discrimination against individuals perceived to be of Arab decent. Our Texas national origin discrimination lawyers represent employees through the EEOC process to ensure that each claim receives the attention it deserves. Employers are often represented by attorneys, and you should be to.

Discrimination comes in a number of forms, and can include decisions about hiring, firing, layoff, promotion, training programs, job assignments, and other terms and conditions of employment. Harassment can also be a form of national origin discrimination, if the harassment is severe or pervasive.

The national origin discrimination lawyers in our Dallas office fight harassment and national origin discrimination every day. Submit your case to our Texas national origin discrimination lawyers.

Protecting Employees Who Have Been Discriminated Against Because Of Their Language

An employer may not discriminate against an employee because of a foreign accent. An English fluency requirement is only permissible if required to actually perform the job. English-only rules may only be adopted for nondiscriminatory reasons.

Client Reviews
I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.
Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
